Melting at the interface between ice sheets and the ocean in the Arctic is much more extensive than previously estimated, according to a study published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. What is happening at the grounding line — the junction between a grounded ice sheet and the ocean — led the researchers to discover much more melting that previously thought at Petermann Glacier in Greenland.
